for questions. an old friend who used to be a cia spokesman said here would be my question. if cbs were doing an investigation of malfeasance, would they accept an answer of we made a mistake. sorry. obviously not. why is this a sufficient response for them? >> i agree. it's not sufficient. you don't need an investigation to know certain things already. the source that they relied on was writing a book for one of the cbs publication companies. they didn't reveal that. i don't think we need an investigation to know that that should have been revealed and/or should have weighed heavily on them when they evaluated him. and the reason why the show is the gold standard is they have the luxury that a lot of reporters don't have which is time and resources and that makes the bigger they are, the harder they fall and it makes everything they're saying so much more important and they have to say what happened. >> there is and should be -- this is important for people to realize. a higher standard when you are alleging wrongdoing in your journalism. >> that's exactly right. and, you know, ly

about the way in which the murdoch press against which you used to compete operates? >> well, i guess when you cover the u.k. press, which i used to as a media correspondent, you're sort of aware there are a series of practices that people talk about but you never really see them exposed. as peter was saying, the way that the press operated in stark truth and in other words going into minister's offices saying we know you're having an affair and seeing back story of how widespread this was, you know, that's shocking even if you knew about it. the other thing which has been very surprising in the past two years is how much impact it's had on overall press in the u.k. there's been a great deal of debate and finally a conclusion as to how the press should no longer be regulated but regulated from if you like a royal by parliament and that's a huge change. there's been a very tumultuous period in british journalism. it hasn't quite reached here in the way we thought it would. >> restrictions you describe that have been proposed beaten around by various political figures there and various
